    Your Cellular is from the USA, so you should do the same as if you were trying to reach China from the USA, even if you are in China. So try 008613913908227890 or if you need to dial a special code like 011 for before international calls, try 0118613908227890.

    I wish to dial from USA cellular to Chengdu China cellular with GSM service. If I were to dial from within China, cell to cell, the number would be: 0 + 139 + 0822 7890. I know that I do not have to use a "0" prefix since I am dialing from within China. Also, I believe I do not need to use a "28" area code because the GSM service provider uses "139" as the cellular area code for this region. I have tried the following numbers without success: 011 + 86 + 28 + 0822 7890 011 + 86 + 0139 + 0822 7890 011 + 86 + 28 + 139 + 0822 7890 011 + 86 + 28 + 0139 + 0822 7890 011 + 86 + 139 + 0822 7890 86 + 139 + 0822 7890 Help!
